FEMA and Democracy

American citizens and for all I know citizens everywhere are having their freedoms eroded by their government(s). There is no doubt about this.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is supposedly a citizen friendly disaster management agency. It looks anything but that. It's 2012 budget was close on $57 billion. What has the money been spent on? Well you can look at the budget and see what it says the money has been spent on or you can look at the hard evidence.

Just take a look at any number of videos on the Internet and what you see is very disturbing. You will see massive military vehicles, residential camps, many in remote areas, surrounded by double barbed wire fence perimeters and inward facing razor wire on top. You will see hundreds of thousands of multiple body "coffins". You will see senators unwilling or unable to answer simple straightforward questions who have co-sponsored bills they either have no understanding of or understand only too well! You will see FEMA officials stonewalling questions or refusing to make themselves available for questioning. You will see other officials squirming when caught out by "embarrassing" questions about whether or not one may or may not be on their watch list as a potential anti-government activist. This might entail nothing more serious than requesting right to know information on government departments!

We shall return to these issues a little further on. These things are disturbing enough but aligned to massive underground bunkers being built with accompanying airstrips and other infrastructure guarded by military personnel willing to shoot american citizens to protect those inside and we start to see something even more sinister. This is not a government of the people for the people.

Take a look at FEMA's track record on disaster management. Remember hurricane Katrina. Remember New Orleans. How many people are still homeless? Trailer homes remain vacant and unused. What did FEMA actually do when the massive recent storms overwhelmed parts of New York and other areas. I remember ordinary citizens mobilising themselves to help those in need and it was uplifting to see but what did FEMA actually do? Did they take the temporarily homeless into their "residential" camps and feed them? Did they use their massive trucks to evacuate those without transport? What did they do?

How many "residential" concentration camps have been built and where? How many people can they hold individually and in total? Why is it necessary to enclose these "residential" camps with huge barbed wire perimeters and razor wire? Why are there signs outside these camps warning that it is not permitted to take anything into the camps that may be used help those inside to escape? I thought they were "residential" camps for housing people in the event of disaster not prison camps!

What is this executive order creating the provision for the Council of Ten Governors and the creation of ten states from the 52? What happens to the other democratically elected governors? What happens to you? What happens to your rights? What happens to democracy? Will American soldiers be drafted in to impose martial law and licensed to shoot, imprison or torture anyone who does not comply? Comply to what? The theft of their democratic and human rights? What is this nightmare? Why don't you know about it? It's your country, your government, your #FEMA. You paid for every bit of it with your money, blood, sweat and tears! How dare they carry out their duties in secret? They are there to serve you in times of need, not dictate, control or manipulate the American public or create unregulated demonic self serving agendas. That this can happen in the so called land of the free is a condemnation of government and the so called free press! Why is this much vaunted free press not all over the politicians like a bad rash?

Why does a disaster management agency require massive military equipment? That's for the military to provide in time of need. Why does it require fusion centres to enable it to spy on ordinary innocent Americans going about their legal activities and expressing their right to freedom of speech or demanding accountability of those elected by them to serve them?

A disaster management agency is a co-ordinating body. It's job is to link other agencies together to cope with whatever disaster occurs, to co-ordinate. That is the management that is required. What are these agencies? They are essentially, fire, police, medical, transport, sea and air rescue, food supply and temporary accommodation for displaced persons.

FEMA is altogether something different. Why does it need a budget of close on $57 billion per annum? This is money that could be used to boost emergency services, stock food and medical supplies, build refugee camps and so on.

Who does FEMA answer to? It should be you. Why is it that it's activities are shrouded in mystery and secrecy? This is the most worrying aspect of this sinister operation? It's just an emergency management agency! Why the need for secrecy? It is the fact that everything FEMA does is hidden from public view that creates suspicion and mistrust in the first place.

This whole nasty business is very bewildering and the governments past and present are the main architects of their own loss of credibility and national trust. A government that governs secretly is not to be trusted by the people who entrusted it with the privilege of service. When government becomes secretive, it is by definition separating itself from the people. It is no longer serving the people who put it there but pursuing it's own independent agenda to extend it's power and control over the people. The people will not and must never tolerate such abuse of their faith and trust or they will soon find themselves enslaved by the system, no longer free men and women.

Why is the job of homeland security and emergency disaster management combined under FEMA? This makes no sense. Security has nothing to do with disaster relief. Whose idea was this and what was the motive behind this curious marriage of responsibility?

Lastly, who do the military think they work for? There job is to serve and protect the nation, not implement the agendas of the elite. They are not separate from society. They are part of it. They are ordinary Americans with a job, just like every other American. They are fathers, mothers, sons and daughters just like everyone else and they should not forget it and nor should the American people. Why are they so intimidatingly uniformed when on domestic service? The American public are their family not their enemy.

President Obama needs to go back to the drawing board and show the people he is their President and not a FEMA puppet. It would appear he is kept out of the loop on a need to know only basis. He needs to correct this misconception and get to grips with what is going on. He should haul these civil servants across the carpet and make it clear who is in charge here. Above all he needs to implement an effective monitoring system that ensures he is fully informed on the nefarious activities of government agencies. That is the job of the Chief Executive Officer of any organisation. It is he who should leading from the front and standing shoulder to shoulder with the people.
